The Admirable Crichton a comedy by J.M. Barrie 1928 Charles Scribner's Sons Vintage Book


| /


This classic English comedy, written by the author of Peter Pan, combines light entertainment with serious undertones concerning British society's class structure during the early twentieth century.

Once a month, Lord Loam encourages his servants to enter the drawing-room for tea. This ritual defiance of tradition disturbs Crichton, the butler, who regards the class system as "the natural outcome of a civilized society."

When the entire household is shipwrecked and stranded on a desert island, a new social order emerges with a master and servant's comic results.

The Admirable Crichton is an excellent addition to your vintage comedy collection or home library.
